Our Sustainability Efforts

TC Tech has been the original printer cartridge manufacturer and recycler in the Western NY for the last 33 years, and while doing so, we have remained conscious of the environment with our Managed Print Program clients. We advocate for sustainability through our Recycling & Remanufacturing Program where we close the loop:

We supply the toner, you send back the empty cartridges, and we send them off to either be remanufactured or recycled responsibly!

Now, we are partnering with the Western New York Sustainable Business Roundtable to integrate sustainability into all our operations. The WNY-SBR is a collaborative group of 70+ organizations that helps and advises businesses across the region with optimizing energy and materials, reducing pollution and waste, and making community investments of sustainability.

We are also proud to have partnered with PrintReleaf to support reforesting efforts! This program creates measurable impacts on environmental restoration by planting trees to offset paper consumption.

Why We Choose Sustainability

Not only is sustainability great for the earth, but also for our bottom line in terms of reducing waste and cutting costs. By reusing and recycling materials, we can advocate for the environment while staying productive in our operations.

Here’s How We Support Sustainability

We offer a range of services and solutions that support sustainability in a number of ways. Here's a look at some of the key green practices we provide. 

Managed Print Services

One of the biggest contributing factors to excessive waste is printer paper. Thousands of pages end up in the trash in a typical office environment, and it happens so often that it may go unnoticed.

  • Our Remote Monitoring keeps an eye on paper usage and supply levels through network visibility.
  • Our Rules-Based Printing controls streamline the workflow for your printer settings, so your workers can conserve supplies for every print job and reduce the cost of prints.

Remanufactured Supplies

We remanufacture a wide variety of supplies, such as toner, photo drums, imaging units, and toner cartridges. Our remanufactured toners, specifically, are cost effective and sustainable for your printing needs. Since our toner cartridges are made from steel and heavy plastics, they can be recycled, as well. This is most ideal since cartridges require a lot of resources in their production and since remanufacturing prevents them from reaching the local landfill.

Fleet Optimization

You can improve sustainability by optimizing your printer fleet. If you have unused or underused devices, for example, you can consolidate your fleet to save on energy and waste. TC Technologies also partners with PrintReleaf, which tracks and reforests every page that is printed.
